Overview & Guidelines
Your reputation for at least the next 2 years is at stake if you don’t write a good enough cover letter to apply for your first job. Entry level applications are the hardest to deal with as one is unaware of the rigors of the employment world and can easily slip.
But that does not mean that failure is always at hand. It is if you don’t play your cards right. It isn’t if you make the extra effort required to write an entry level cover letter for bookkeeper position. If you have ever found yourself in a situation where you are clueless about how your cover letter will be taken by a prospective employer, you will know that it is not a comfortable feeling. Do something about it! As you go through a dozen or so cover letter samples for entry level positions, you will find out that they have one thing in common – enthusiasm. Never underestimate the power of writing enthusiastically – enthusiasm is contagious and can rub off on the reader, bringing the interview stage nearer!

Dear Mr. Owens:
I successfully earned my bachelor’s degree in accounting and would like to join Ace Securities as a Bookkeeper. I am positive that injecting new blood into your company’s accounting department will bring it greater focus and exposure to new technologies in bookkeeping.
Having worked extensively on advanced versions of all popular bookkeeping software (including Peachtree and Numerac), my bookkeeping skills are extensive. During my internship at Financials Inc., I was responsible for discovering a discrepancy within the financial records which could have cost the company colossal financial damage if left unearthed. This incident earned me kudos from the management in the form of Intern of the Year award.
Meticulousness is my middle name – with the intention of working for you by following organized beekeeping procedures, I offer my services as a bookkeeper to Financials Inc. I will be in touch next week to arrange an interview. Until then, you may reach me at (000) 666-6666.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
